COMMON THREAD SCHOOLS - Provision for Monitoring and Evaluation
Staff will regularly evaluate the progress and merits of the programme and the approach to learning and teaching, including its effectiveness, in enabling each young person to attain their short term and long-term targets. Fulfilment of criteria regarding targets can also be provided by feedback from all relevant staff both teaching and pastoral.
All teachers are aware of each young person’s strengths and difficulties and their long-term targets and have access to their PLP/IEP. Progress in these can be reviewed and evaluated at the weekly education meeting, as can the suitability and effectiveness of the curriculum.
Strengths and weaknesses will be identified and strategies for further improvement developed.
